433. Non-use of a)/n with present and perfect indicative.

The present and perfect indicative are not used with “ἄν”, but owing to the great variation in the position of “ἄν” beginners sometimes make a mistake in this regard. In ANDOC. 1.117 read “βούλοισθε” for “βούλεσθε”. In PLATO, Legg. 712E, read with Schanz “ἀνερωτηθείς” (cf. 793 A).
